Wii Fit helping Aussie obesity epidemic

Nintendo today announced that Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus have sold more than one million units in Australia. It goes to show how dedicated Aussies are to personal health and fitness. It's also quite obviously a clear indication of the broad market the Wii appeals to. Would a similar title sell as well on XBOX 360 or Playstation 3? Probably not.

If you're yet to get into Wii Fit Plus, you can buy the title as a standalone disc for a RRP. of $29.95 without having to fork out for another balance board.

Nintendo also confirmed that Wii Play has more than 900,000 units sold, Mario Kart Wii has more than 600,000 units and Wii Sports Resort has sold through more than 500,000 units.

Wii Sports Resort has sold through more than 500,000 units.



Do those sales include units given out with the wii?
I have bought it, but haven't played it in months. I wonder how many of those people still play it everyday. :P

Yeah, I probably played it for a week, but haven't had the time to play it.
Anyway, it is still good to hear that it is selling well.

My mum bought Wii Fit when it came out and she used it for a while and then stopped cause of not having the time. Should get it again to see what Wii Fit Plus is like :O
They may buy it but who says they will be motivated to use it at all, let alone properly. It's more fun to stuff around with it I found.
Wii Fit helped me lose weight (love)
My dad currently uses the one in my Wii every morning, mainly he only does the weight in bit though and finds out how old he is today
Honestly, I played for a half an hour minimum every day for a month, and I noticed no change, so I gave it up. Therefore, exercise is a lie. (evil) :P

=D
GG FatZap!... wait what :*O
